Evan, what grabbed your attention and interest in the Horticulture Diploma program?

"Ridgetown Campus has plenty of green spaces as wells as hundreds of tree and shrub species on campus. I felt very comfortable and wanted to be in a small class size and at a smaller campus. Ridgetown Campus really suited my learning style perfectly, and I also got a summer job on campus in my area of study."
